It was hot. Really, really hot. Like 100 degrees which is unheard of here in May. The kids had finished a game and come back for pizza. They wanted to shoot . . . of course. Mom agreed, but asked dad to turn on a sprinkler on the lawn behind them. Genius. The kids got cooled off without getting soaking wet and the driveway cement got wet and shiny and everyone was happy.
And BTW, they feel like stars - I took 4x6 prints of this and another pic over to them today.

Yes, these boys knew I was taking their picture. But I did not plan or set up the shot. As you can see, they each had a basketball and they had a shooting drill going. I have to confess that I didn't realize how much like a time lapse composite this would look until I was looking at the shots on my computer. Then I thought it was pretty cool :)

The 3 kids are looking great in this action shot. The background processing however doesn't seem to fit the whole. A 7 from me

Nice action pseudo-progression of these young folk on the court, or driveway. The direct gaze of the boy on the left disrupts expectation. Friends hanging out in the neighborhood, doesn't get better. The tree makes a lovely background.
